The Mini-ITX is 5
February 06, 2007
VIA Technologies have announced a month of birthday celebrations for their EPIA Mini-ITX motherboards, five today (ish). It's time to put on our party hats and blow our plastic trumpets.
We don't need to remind you that in that the past 5 years the phrase "Mini-ITX" has become synonymous with low power consumption, small sized, low noise, fully integrated x86 computing. Or for Mini-ITX enthusiasts stuffing their boards in unusual places and then sending us documentary evidence to prove it. VIA can do that for you - in fact they've got a nice press release all about it.
VIA Arena has a gallery of (some rather familiar) Mini-ITX projects, with a poll running between 10th and 24th February for your favourites. Get there early and you can suggest more projects.
EPIA Center would like you to send in a Mini-ITX related photo with a birthday theme by 25th February.
Impromptu Mini-ITX.com competition because everybody else has one: Send us an email briefly stating the best and worst features of your Mini-ITX board by 23rd February and we'll randomly and quite unfairly pick one out of the hat as the winner. Unless you send us something that makes us laugh, in which case we'll change the rules to let you win. Prize is whatever we can blag from VIA, or failing that something from the Mini-ITX Store. Email address for entries is feedback at mini-itx dot com.
